What distinguishes these two? Of 31 components detected by gas chromatography, 21
differed significantly. Moreover, all 21 compounds are significantly
positively correlated with furanocoumarin content. Among the most highly correlated,
however, was octyl-butyrate. Ninety percent of the variation in total furanocoumarin
content can be predicted by octyl-butyrate content
